Scoliosis is complex. The muscles on one side of the body are frequently doing something completely different than the other side of the body. To begin to understand the complexities, this poster can help remind you of the large muscles asymmetries and how the tissues of scoliosis have their very own functional pattern. A pattern that we must respect in order to begin to makes changes to a more physiologically normal pattern.
This poster has been a great tool for helping our clients/patients with scoliosis. It starts a conversation and allows us to explain what is going on deep under the skin. The light-hearted quality of the poster also takes some of the “clinical” and scary-ness out of scoliosis.
